A man decides after seventy years
That what he goes there for
Is to unlock the door
While those around him criticize and sleep

I'd sing to you, just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God wouldn't let it live.....

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go through time with

Little piece of me you can't have
And I know that it's driving you mad
There's a part inside you can't reach
I'm afraid that's the way it's gonna be
There's a part of you that wants to fight
But I never really had the appetite
I fear my feelings won't speak
Words will be taken upon the breeze
The wind is always blowing

Bugs Bunny came to Martinique

When he arrived he was pretty weak

His knees looked like they would buckle in

His tribulations caused by a penguin

Now hes built a boat on which they both can leave

He hoped that fickle fate had nothing up her sleeve

If he should accomplish this daring thing

A miracle to Martinique Bugs did bring

To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea
Tracing one warm line

To make a Northwest Passage to the sea ...

As i go through
This wicked week
Searchin' for talented QBs in the NFL draft.

I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only Rivers, Tebow, and Ryan Leaf?

And each time i feel like this inside,
There's one thing i wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout Eli & Peyton Manning? ohhhh
What's so funny 'bout Eli & Peyton Manning?

And as i watched on
Through later rounds
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong
And who are the busts?
And where is next Tom Brady?
Sweet Tom Brady.

'cause each time i feel Luck slippin' away, just trade up for RG III.
What's so funny 'bout Eli & Peyton Manning? ohhhh

You wrote some good stuff before disco came along like Don King in Mike Tyson's life and ripped everything up.
Hey! The Bee Gees had a whole other life before disco transmorgraphied them into something to be shunned.
Disco.

Musical history lesson:

Ben E. King, 1961:

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem
A red rose up in Spanish Harlem
It is a special one, it's never seen the sun
It only comes out when the moon is on the run
And all the stars are gleaming
It's growing in the street, right up through the concrete
But soft and sweet and dreaming

Justin Bieber, 2010:

And I was like, baby baby baby oh!
Like baby baby baby no!
Baby baby baby oh!

Wha...what happened?

Wolfie I've seen that comparison elsewhere, and its a funny jab at the apparent state of lyrics in today music industry. But seriously, comparing the refrain from Beiber's stupid pop song to Spanish Harlem is hardly fair. Pop music can't be compared like that, from this generations or any others.

Here's a few examples of the refrain from a few classic pop songs from the 60s:

Go go, go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go, go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go go, Johnny B. Good


She loves you, yeah yeah yeah
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah yeah


Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go


C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby, now
(Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out
(Work it on out)



Now I'm not defending Beiber's songs, but you see my point, right? :-P

My favorite example of vacuous and shallow "classic" rock lyrics is Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue":

If you knew Peggy Sue
Then you’d know why I feel blue
Without Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you gal, yes, I love you Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Oh how my heart yearns for you
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you gal, yes, I love you Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you gal and I need you Peggy Sue

I love you Peggy Sue
With a love so rare and true
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Well I love you gal, I want you Peggy Sue

Peggy Sue, Peggy Sue
Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty Peggy Sue
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you gal and I need you Peggy Sue

I love you Peggy Sue
With a love so rare and true
Oh Peggy, my Peggy Sue
Well I love you gal, I want you Peggy Sue
Oh well, I love you gal and I want you Peggy Sue

For you I was a flame
Love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came
Love is a losing game

One I wish I never played
Oh what a mess we made
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

Played out by the band
Love is a losing hand
More than I could stand
Love is a losing hand

Self professed, profound
'til the chips were down
I know you're a gambling man
Love is a losing hand

Though I battle blind
Love is a fate resigned
Memories mar my mind
Love is a fate resigned

Over futile odds
And laughed at by the gods
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game

Oh, my life is changing everyday,
In every possible way.
And oh, my dreams, it's never quite as it seems,
Never quite as it seems.

I know I've felt like this before, but now I'm feeling it even more,
Because it came from you.
And then I open up and see the person falling here is me,
A different way to be.

I want more impossible to ignore,
Impossible to ignore.
And they'll come true, impossible not to do,
Impossible not to do.

And now I tell you openly, you have my heart so don't hurt me.
You're what I couldn't find.
A totally amazing mind, so understanding and so kind.
You're everything to me.

Oh, my life, is changing every day,
In every possible way.

And oh, my dreams,
It's never quite as it seems,

You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favorite sweater and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby

I will love you 'til the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you'll remember that you're mine
Baby, can you see through the tears
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you'll remember, oh baby, say you'll remember
I will love you 'til the end of time

You know what the crazy thing is?

There aren't any 7-Elevens in Memphis.

"Hunting? No, I think it's a perfectly beastly sport!" quipped Frobisher as they leaned on the
Mantlepiece over the crisp autumn fire.
Featherstonehaugh felt his calves warming pleasantly as the brandy seeped below his waist:
Knotting slightly over the abdomen, suddenly passing back up through the spine,
Causing a small trickle of the otherwise pleasing brown fluid to shoot from the fontanel on top of his head
Which landed on top of the other guy's head
(I've forgotten his name now... aw, anyway, he got covered in it).
"Aw, what's this?"
"Some kind of fluid," said Featherstonehaugh.
"Fluid?Oh, that's the tops!"

"No, they use them for clothes pegs, you know!"
Continued Featherstonehaugh, somewhat more droll.
"Really?" said Butterworth, who was feeling rather left out of the conversation.
"Oh yes, that's right, you know,
They pick them up in Siberia and bring them over."
"Siberia!" interjected the fellow whose name I still can't remember.
"Topping place! Went there once. Found a little moustache.
One of the Russkies had it. Wah ha ha!
Took it home, don't you know. Showed the little lady. Hrrmph.
She put it on.Left me for another woman.Hmmm.
Rum things, lefts.And women."
He was left alone:there was no one there, not even a woman,
Just the fireplace and his ever swelling chins.
As the brandy began taking lethal effect, Featherstonehaugh (or was it Butterworth?
Or was it the other guy whose name I can't remember?) found himself slowly turning into
Some kind of helpless, diseased houseplant.
As he watched his future and his past gradually become interchangeable like a highway surrounding a drunken man
That begins to spin, he looked up above him.
Even the angels were asleep.It was one of those nights.
Ahhh.October.
